Jaxson's Paul McDowell Makes Us A Sundae

Welcome to the How-To series, a periodic segment of photo essays that highlight the dishes and drinks area restaurants do well, who makes them, and how they do it. This week, we're focusing on Jaxson's Ice Cream, the local institution that's been making ice cream in Dania for decades. To the delight of South Florida ice cream lovers, Monroe Udell opened Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant in 1956. Since then, the shop has grown, along with the collection of antiques inside. Watch as Jaxson's whips up some delicious concoctions, like the kitchen sink made by employee Paul McDowell.

McDowell starts by scooping mounds of ice cream of his choosing into the kitchen sink on the counter. The sink sundae is a Jaxson's concoction an employee creates at his whim. It's $12.75 a person for parties of four or more.

Two giant scoops of vanilla, one of chocolate, and two of mint chocolate chip serve as the base.

ell opts for marshmallow topping, strawberries, pineapple, and hot fudge for starters.

He finishes off his kitchen sink with bananas, whipped cream, and cherries on top.
Don't forget the nuts.
Owner Monroe Udell inspects.
